    These little figures are kinda lame when packed in with PCC figures.

    By themselves they are really lame.

    $150 for three is.... absurd.

    I would love me some targetmasters, but at that price I'm very sure I can manage without them....

    That's fucking ridiculous. Just buy the PCC's and paint them if you're so desperate for "Targetmasters." That will save you about $110.

    I thought that was a misprint on the price at first but damn I would rather repaint the originals for cheaper.

    Like I said, FP or some 3rd party will probably give is more accurate Targetmasters for a hell of a lot cheaper, especially if Sidearm is any indication.

    Yeah, that isn't happening. I don't give a damn how rare these will be. They are pretty dire toys at $9.99, so $150 is outright laughable. My biggest issue with these PCC minicons is that they barely hold their shape. They don't really peg together and feel secure as a weapon. Parts just sorta flop around, at least in the 6 or so molds I've had.

    The Caliburst mold is probably the worst they could have chosen for this set.

    Takara has gone too far here on the pricing.

    ^ It's BBTS who is pricing these sets for sale. Correct me if I'm wrong but in Japan, these "targetmasters" are to be given out free with purchases of the new United line. TakaraTomy had nothing to do with the pricing of these pieces.

    Wow, now it says the preorder is sold out. Apparently there are fans out there with an immensely disposable income.

    VVVVV I KNOW RIGHT?!?! Truly a WTF worthy of a WTF.
